    Old man trying to contract.

    Question, I’m trying to contract as a 25 yr old. My recruiter says I’m going to need top tier godlike times in order to contract at my age. Is the still true or do I have a fighting chance with optimal times? Currently 1 month into full training and preparing. Last time I started recruitment (pulled out prior to contracting became a father) I had a 82 asvab and 3 on c-sort. Attempting to better both.

    I have been totally honest with every navy recruiter I have ever spoken with and I have never been told anything like about how I need "god-like" PST scores to get a SEAL contract. Hmm. 15 pull ups to just get through the door? I don't think that is a realistic expectation of anybody that wants to get a SEAL contract who is no prior service. If the magic number is a Max of 17 pull-ups (it basically is) there have been guys that have their Trident YEARS BEHIND THEM that have had to do significant work to get to a maximum of 17 pull-ups or more. I would love to watch somebody do a 1.5 Mi run in 8:00! That is almost like a world record. Well if you can do that in 8 minutes maybe you should be trying to break the 1 Mile world record.

    I would assume you should ultimately shoot for officer optimum:

    Swim - 8:25
    Push - 98
    Sit - 91
    Pull - 21
    Run - 8:59

    Source: https://apps.sealswcc.com/pst/officercalc

    On the other hand, according to a book called Breaking BUD/S, highly competitive officer scores would be

    Swim - 7:00
    Push - 120
    Sit - 120
    Pull - 30
    Run - 8:00

    I would assume "God-like" would fall under the category of the latter, but I would not set unrealistic goals if I were you. Work on getting autoquals, then worry about officer optimum and beyond. Better yet, just work to do better than you did previously every time you take a PST.

    We have mini score, 10:30, 50, 50, 10, 10:30

    And then auto qual: 9:30, 75, 75, 15, 9:30

    What would be considered “God-like”?

    Nah bro you’re good. Good ASVAB. Don’t worry about that. Hit those competitive times and you’re solid. You’re age is not an issue until you’re 28 almost 29.

    Swim: 9:30
    Push: 75
    Sit: 75
    Pull: 15
    Run: 9:30

    Hit these numbers and you have a good shot. Of course higher scores are always welcome
